Titanfall 2 Receives First DLC Map and Microtransactions Next Week

Titanfall 2

Prepare for cosmetics.

Titanfall 2’s first DLC map drops next week on Nov. 30 for players who had pre-ordered the game, developer Respawn announced today. The Angel City map, an updated version from the previous game, will be playable on Dec. 3 for everyone else.

The DLC update, nicknamed Angel City’s Most Wanted, includes the free map, a new pistol, new titan kits, and a few more menus. An in-game store selling cosmetics is also being added, and the developer reiterated in the blog post that all maps, modes, and weapons will remain free. The store will sell new skins, camo, and Prime Titans with different chassis and assassination animations “for a modest price,” and can only be bought with real money.


“We will have no in-game currency exchange. No locked loot boxes, crafting shards or pay-to-win weaponry. No RNG,” Respawn said. “If you see something you like, you buy it and that’s it. These in no way effect stats and are purely cosmetic.”

Here is the full list for the Angel City’s Most Wanted update below:

  • Angel City map: A fan favorite map from Titanfall 1 is reborn for Titanfall 2. Fans that pre-ordered Titanfall 2 will get access to the Angel City map starting on November 30. All other players will get access to the Angel City map starting on December 3rd.
  • Wingman Elite Pistol
  • Titan Kits: Get more customization for your Titan with these all new kits:
  • Ion: Refraction Lens – Splitter Rifle splits 5 ways
  • Scorch: Scorched Earth – Flame Core ignites the ground, leaving thermite in its wake
  • Northstar: Threat Optics – Enemies are highlighted while zooming in
  • Tone: Burst Loader – Aiming allows the 40mm to store up to 3 shots to burst fire
  • Legion: Hidden Compartment – Power Shot has two charges
  • Ronin: Phase Reflex – When doomed, Ronin phases out of danger
  • Pilot Execution: Inner Pieces – Phase into an unsuspecting victim
  • Stats screen
  • FAQ menu
  • In-game store

Respawn says it will continue to support Titanfall 2 well through the next year with future content updates and free DLC. Despite sluggish sales, publisher Electronic Arts is sticking by Respawn to build a franchise out of Titanfall. During an investor’s Q&A earlier this month, EA CFO Blake Jorgensen noted that “there’s huge opportunity inside of that franchise to continue to expand it.”
